Re: trying to install Debian encrypted in an existed partition, keeping the rest as it is ...




 use case:

 Say, you have a computer preinstalled with Windows, on which you
would like to install a Debian Linux base. You would:

 1) resize the larger, Windows proper (/dev/sda3) partition
 2) install Linux encrypted in the created space, with
 3) what you need to start it up (the /root partition) on a pen drive

 So, other people may be able to use that box just fine under Windows
and you would do your thing.

 If for whatever reason you disown that computer, you would just
delete that partition. Your own data you will keep on a USB pen or
microdrive.

 Any step by step procedures?
